LBAM Found in Oregon

The light brown apple moth, an invasive leaf rolling moth found on the central coast of California since 2007, was detected in Oregon this summer. Although light brown apple moth (LBAM) has been much slower to spread than SWD, it was the target of a large scale eradication effort in California and crops grown in infested areas have been subject to quarantine. LBAM can infest a large number of host plants, which raised concerns about it pest potential, but economic losses in CA have been primarily due to quarantine restrictions and not direct crop feeding.
